  1. blkrchs's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

  2. S Campbell's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    a small masterpiece packed with great acting and cool dialogue

  3. James Mackin's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    It's a bit heavy-handed at points, but is all in all quite good. Shout out to Ben Mendelsohn and Scoot McNairy, Bloodline and HCF represent.

  4. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    The polemic was heavy handed. It would have earned another star without that. The stuff that dragged was the Gandolfini bits. Ben and Scoot were great.

  5. babycakesromero's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    ok but just trying way too hard to be goodfellahs. its an easy comparisson to make but blame dominik for straying too close to his inspiration.

  6. Chris's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    good acting but just... so... boring... and why does everyone listen to same news station 24/7? Couldn't make it to the end

  7. Nathanielll's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

  8. JCPJD's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    Atmosphere and character. If you're looking for a slick gangster flick - move along. This is an era encapsulating film that will be recognised as a great work in years to come. Pitt gives his best performance - he actually adds to the thing rather than his usual unbalancing best efforts. The dialogue is fantastic. Yay for the written word in the mouth of committed actors. Dominik is the Altman of our times (I hope).

  9. Beatriz Ourique's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    "In America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now fucking pay me."

  10. Artem Eihart's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    second star is for driving scenes, third - for the final speech

  11. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    I totally love this type of movie. Cool, calm and collected with peaks of glorified, stylized violence.

  12. When the Sun Dies's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    Terrific. Simple and powerful, just like I like them. This is the kind of movie that the more you watch it, the better it becomes, and I encourage anyone who hasn't watched it yet, or who didn't like it at first watch... Give this one a try, a second chance... It'll get under your skin eventually.

  13. William's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    2.5 I think the much-touted "F" CinemaScore this film received stems from (1) Humanity's unwavering desire never to see Ray Liotta so violently abused & (2) the general repugnance the cynicism on display here elicits. The opening card game robbery is electrifyingly suspenseful but the rest is too dreary & heavy-handed to be effective. And seeing Gandolfini in such a bad way hurt my heart!

  14. Jack Hemingway's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

  15. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    There is a stunning, viscerally engaging and powerful opening title sequence, and then nothing in the film even remotely adds up to the expectation of that montage. To have a political message is all well and good, but there was no grander logic to its presentation, and it was fanatically overstated, so it comes off as not only forced but pretentious to boot. For a film with its title it was speaking rather loudly.

  16. Star Lord's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    Cogan - Killing them softly. Non male ma niente di che.

  17. dave gunn's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    While still a violent and action-packed crime film on the outside, this somehow manages to be a political art film at its core. The backdrop of the 2008 economic recession and another bullshit American election parallels perfectly the depression and economy of what are basically off-the-books street capitalists living a more realistic American dream. Dominik does a lot of cool stuff, reminiscent of De Palma, even.

  18. Victor Emiliano Martinez's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    Me fascino las escenas de disparos y las actuaciones de los que entran en ella, pues tiene cada quien un personaje que es diferente pero todos acuden de una manera al asesino para hacer su justicia, la paleta de coloren esta película, me encanto es una maravilla es clara y muy detallada en ese aspecto, tomas adecuadas y precisas para los encuadres y angulos correspondientes a lo necesario, muy buena la verdad.

  19. runfromfire's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    Maybe a little over-stylization and a little heavy-handed with the "financial crisis" allegory (the Bush/Obama overdubs got old quick) but a good flick overall. Pitt & Gandolfini were great and Richard Jenkins makes everything better by showing up.

  20. Ryuu Baron's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    The style, the softness, the quality.

  21. Michael Peer's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    Underrated but understandably uncommercial. With Dominik, you know you are going to get some of the best cinematography in the business, and this film is one of the best looking anamorphic films I've seen. Too bad the film is not as interesting as it looks. An overt parable to the 2008 economic collapse.

  22. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

  23. Ligia Prodan's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

  24. Braden Vallenères's rating of the film Killing Them Softly

    More like a 3.5. It's heavy-handed and a little too stylized but what it does well makes up for that.
